I'm having a really bad week. There hasn't been anything new in my life that happened or went wrong, exactly; it's just one of those weeks when I'm having an incredibly difficult time coping, and the darkness in my mind has grown up around me, creating a seemingly impenetrable fortress. It's one of those weeks when, try as I might, I can't seem to manage any of my responsibilities, and all I have the energy-- mental or otherwise-- to do is peruse social media, taking brief breaks to attempt to do things that are supposed to make me happy, like writing or drawing. These past few days, I've considered it an accomplishment if I can even hold a conversation with someone.
That being said, I'm doing my best to distract myself, and surround myself with cheerful, funny things to try to pull myself back together again. I was checking out a mental illness blog I like, one that usually posts resources or bits of inspiration, and I came across this image:
Cheerful, if slightly macabre? Check. Full of suggestions for what I should do when I'm completely at a loss? Check. Cute ghost art? Octuple check.
According to their website, "The Sad Ghost Club is a club for anyone who’s ever felt sad or lost. It’s the club for those who don’t feel like they’re part of any other club."
In that case, I think I just joined the club. I feel so accomplished, today.
I have no idea what I'm doing.
